“Bob Bar- Cool Vibe- but NOT a RESTAURANT!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012

Bob Bar is a neighbor of mine; as a result, i have spent several nights there-
(and always hear his music from my house until well after midnight!!!)
Bob is a great guy (even though he was inexplicably surly towards me last year)
he's very funny w/myriad of stories, reasonable prices on beers & drinks...
(and one morning, i met famous Thai reggae artist Job2Do there)
Bob's always reliable for a good time and cool laid-back vibe
(although there are some beach bars here that do the reggae/rasta vibe also)

the people who say they have eaten there are sorely mistaken-
he does NOT serve food; and i have not even seen him ever have a barbecue...
there are restaurants nearby, to the south on the road, although not many open late...
a pleasant place, good for a visit (although maybe gets old too many nights in a row?!?!?)

“He Lives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Bob Bar is owned and run by the re-incarnation of "the" man himself. Great vibe, great music, typical Thai service with a smile and a laugh.

“Bob is Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

We didnt actually eat at Bobs but not sure where to write a review, we were in koh lanta for our last week of our two month holiday in thailand and spent a few evenings at Bobs bar, Bob is a brilliant host, he is quite crazy but very welcoming and we loved hearing his ridiculous stories.
His bar is a briliant rasta bar with plenty of bob marley stuff and hammocks. if your in koh lanta its a must to pop into bobs for a beer and a chat!!
he has a face book page if you search for bob bar koh lanta

“A Must Visit when in Koh Lanta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

We first saw Bob's Bar on the road through Klong Kong when traveling to our resort. It was decorated in Jamaican/Reggae style, so colourful and inviting, I decided then to later pay it a visit and I'm so glad I did.

I don't think Bob advertises his bar in any of the local leaflets but this is a gem you don't want to miss. Bob is a big fan of Bob Marley, the laid back atmosphere, great music and time spent relaxing and talking to Bob will not be forgotten. The bar is right on the road so you'll not miss it, prices are reasonable, but Bob's company is the best thing. Great fun and lots of stories, you won't regret a visit here. Thanks Bob, Elaine and Angela, Scotland.
